We provided strategic recommendations on how to effectively incorporate machine learning and a recommender system into the ActOn app and developed the final product.
MedNition Inc., a Silicon Valley-based healthcare technology company applies machine learning to provide physicians and clinical practitioners with real-time clinical decision support to improve patient safety and improve operational efficiency for hospitals. With a predictive model that is clinically validated by teams of physicians, MedNition’s initial prototype product achieved medical device level accuracy which is required for clinical environments. MedNition’s simple deployment, HIPAA-compliancy and seamless integration into their customers existing medical record systems mean that physicians can start using MedNition instantly and without the need for time-consuming training or patient care workflow changes. Digamma’s team was involved from the beginning in the design and implementation of MedNition’s machine learning framework.

- Worked with diverse anonymized patient data — including nurse and physicians’ notes, patient medical history and vital measurements — provided in a variety of formats from several hospitals
- Used a variety of medical information ontologies and implemented feature engineering
- Applied state-of-the-art machine learning methods to predict the severity and risk of patients’ conditions
- Fine tuned algorithms to achieve a desired balance between precision and recall accuracy measures
Digamma’s team analyzed patients’ data at MedNition and played a key role in setting up the company’s machine learning-driven framework.
